    Also, I don't recall seeing much promotion for the 80's channel itself or 80's music at all. I think I only remember seeing banners 'n such for the Main Channel. If you look at the top of the SR homepage itself it doesn't even mention 80's it says "Alternative Darkwave EBM Electro Industrial Goth".

    Anyway, that's my two cents...
    I am new here, but I reiterate the above. I found Sanctuary from random clicking in iTunes and well, your main stream plays what I love most, although I am an 80s child. I'd like to tune in to the 80s stream to see what it's like but my preference is for the obscuria, fringe, one hit wonders etc.

    It's possible that most fans tune in to the main stream, which is fabulous, so don't overwork yourself if you don't need to.

    Honestly, I hadn't given the 80's channel a try before. So, after seeing that input was wanted, I tuned it in while making dinner. Nearly 3 hours later, I still have it playing. I really don't see a problem with the channel's programming at all - it's wonderful! The only input I can think to give is to maybe have more remixes, and to give the channel more exposure, as others have said. The only way I found the main channel was through my daughter, and she found it on iTunes. So, I guess, see if you can get listed through them. Other than that, you're doing an awesome job on both channels in my opinion!!

    I suppose I am not much help either. I usually only listen to the main channel. I love 80's, but I just never end up listening to that station. Sorry I couldnt be of more help. I love the main channel and try to donate a little each month. Hopefully someone that listens and loves the 80's channel will have some great ideas.

    i love the 80s station - it's the music that got me through high school! i agree with sticking to more obscure/weird stuff and avoiding the poppier side - i have to be in a certain mood for it so i'm not always there, but i do like knowing it's there if i need it!

    Thanks everyone for letting us know what you think!
    Here's some answers/comments to your posts.

    As for getting listed in Tunes, it took Apple over 3 years to finally list our Main Channel on there.

    And we have been denied from MANY other player listings like Microsoft's Windows Media Player because of how the 'alternative/goth' format has been wrongly linked to bad things in the media (ie. Columbine) and the general lack of understanding of the culture/listeners. It has been an uphill battle just to do Sanctuary because of this big misunderstanding in the general public.

    So I have no idea when/if our 80s Channel will be listed on iTunes.

    I would actually prefer people connect/listen directly through our web site since most things on the internet are judged on the amount of hits your web site gets. I would also love to see our forums and other features we have here being used a lot more. The more hits our web site gets, the more attractive it is for bands and labels. And for other things that can help us grow like potential web site sponsors as well.

    I think for now, we'll keep the 80s Channel going. And I'll continue to add more cool tunes to it. But please keep the comments coming!

    Wow, I had no idea about all the misinformation out there about the goth music format - that's a shame!! Nor that it took iTunes 3 years to list the main channel - that's just crazy! I am very happy that you've decided to keep the 80's channel around for a while. Since I finally gave it a chance, I find myself listening to it quite frequently. I just wish there were more ways to promote it.

    Rob,

    I don't listen to the 80's channel at all. I only listen to the main Darkwave/Alternative channel, that is it. Wish I could put in more input, but I'm on the fence for this one. It it stays, all is good. If it goes, all is good.

    Thanks,

    Krona

    Question Another iTunes user

    I wish that I could offer some constructive feedback here, but I honesty didnít even realize there was a second stream! Iíve been listening to the main stream through iTunes for years though. Admittedly Iím a pretty finicky listener, but Iím proud to say Sanctuaryís main channel is the only one that I always come back to! And after checking for the first time in a long while, Iíve just realized that the main channel has the highest play count on my playlist.

    I do like the 80s music I've heard on the main channel, so I would like to try the 80s channel. Does anyone know the URL to stream the 80s channel through iTunes? **not phone, if that makes a difference
